NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro Nashville Police officers arrested 27-year-old Terrence J. Clark for allegedly putting his mom's dog in an apartment complex trash compactor.
Surveillance video shows Clark pull up in a car, remove the Shih Tzu from the back seat, put it in a plastic grocery bag, and then place it in the trash compactor.
The video then shows the suspect push the compactor button four times before returning to his car and driving away.
On Feb. 21, someone heard the dog whimpering and barking from inside the compactor and called the Nashville Fire Department. Firefighters responded to the complex and rescued it.
The dog was rushed to a veterinarian, but died four days later. The investigation showed the dog belonged to Clark’s mother.
Clark was charged Tuesday afternoon with aggravated animal cruelty and jailed in lieu of $65,000 bond.
